    Hello 8GeeseALaying, i actually just posted pics of my geese today to find out if anyone had seen any like it before because i havnt and i was wanting another and couldnt find any pics of any similar, and someone told me you have some similar.. yours are beautiful! I actually gave one to my mom last hatch that looks similar to yours, but mine even from the same hatch seems like the colors mixed and didnt so much band? What color chinese is your mom and dad to the pieds if you dont mind me asking?
     
  5. Hi Goosecrazy! Thank you for the compliment on my goslings. For the 5 purebreds Their father is a brown chinese and their mother is white. It is also that way for my crossbred pied tufted. Though i was told this is a sex linked cross i still beleive that i have 3 female and 3 male. My 5 pure chinese pied have the brown chinese base color but my crossbreed is grey. I plan to keep going with this color and regardless of gender i have possible mates already lined up. This was an experiment to get pied goslings and right out of the gate i was blessed with the two above, second hatch gave me my other 4. It was a goal met for me. My next step is to breed for more white on them.
    I would love to see you pics, you can post them here since they are chinese as well.

    I think I have two male chinese geese. Can anyone verify this for me by the pictures?

  8. Its hard to tell with that picture. Is there anyway that you could get a better pic more close up?
    How old are they? Are they honking yet? If so which one has the higher shrieking like honk? Which has the larger knob?

    Thanks for the info 8geese, my crosses have a brown chinese father and a white chinese mother also, i just wasnt sure if this was a normal outcome of crossing the two colors.. These are my babies!

    Goosecrazy, your geese are gorgeous! This past spring, I attempted to cross my two white African geese with brown African ganders, hoping to get offspring that look like your geese, but only got browns with a touch of white markings.
